Chabad's Wish List
Chabad House requires, in addition to monetary donations, numerous,
more specific areas in which merely money will not suffice to meet
our needs. You can choose to contribute, more specifically, a
non-monetary donation. Listed below are some of the areas that
Chabad needs for improvement. If you are capable of performing such
a mitzvah, from the list below, your “tzedek”-ness will be greatly
The Chabad House has several plans to remodel,
rework, and maintain the grounds surrounding the facility. These
include structural changes for the walkway, an upkeep of the bushes

equipment, furniture and programs at Chabad often has an additional

the general cause. (In particular, computer-related donations should
be rather up-to-date, as obsolete equipment can not further our
goals very well).
